Author of Guide for Pedophiles Arrested on Obscenity Charges
December 21, 2010
PUEBLO, CO – The author of a guide for pedophiles was arrested today in Colorado for allegedly violating Florida obscenity laws by sending a signed copy of the book to undercover detectives, the Winter Haven News Chief report.
Phillip R. Greaves II wrote the 2010 book The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-Lover’s Code of Conduct.
The self-published book offers advice to pedophiles on how to make sexual encounters with children as safe as possible. It was briefly for sale on Amazon before being removed by the website, the Associated Press reports.
The 47-year-old Greaves was arrested at his Pueblo, Colo., home on a Florida warrant charging him with distribution of obscene material depicting minors engaged in conduct harmful to minors, a third-degree felony.
The Polk Sheriff’s Office alleged that Greaves sent a signed copy of the book to undercover officers.
